“Antiques Roadshow”-type event in York County; concurrent book signing

MTHSThe Manchester Township Historical Society is sponsoring an Antique Appraisal Clinic (in the spirit of the popular TV program Antiques Roadshow). This popular event will take place this Tuesday, April 1, 2014, starting at 6:30 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 3200 Farmtrail Road (just off of I-83/Susquehanna Trail/Church Road). This is a half-mile west of the Tom’s gas station at Church and the Trail.

Admission is free, but there is a modest charge to have your antiques and valuables appraised. A portion of the proceeds goes to help the MTHS in its mission to document and preserve the heritage of Manchester Township.

Manchester Township Civil War author and tour guide Scott Mingus will be on-site as well to sell and sign copies of his popular Civil War books, including Flames Beyond Gettysburg: The Confederate Expedition to the Susquehanna River, June 1863. This book tells the story of the occupation of York by the Confederate army, as well as the burning of the world’s longest covered bridge.
